If the Boston University men’s hockey team is going to revive its season, give itself a fighting chance of making any noise as the Hockey East prepares for the postseason, it will have to do it 800 miles from Boston.

This weekend the Terriers will visit South Bend, Ind., where they will play two games against No. 15 University of Notre Dame at Compton Family Ice Arena. Both games will be at 7 p.m., with Friday’s contest airing on NBC Sports Network.

After taking off from Boston around 9 a.m., the team’s flight could not reach its destination of Chicago — from which they would bus to South Bend — due to heavy fog.
